1987 -- Ken Clark
is the author of a new
book about the former Pittsburg, Shawmut
& Northern Railroad. The book was pub-
lished by Arcadia Publishing as part of its
Image of Rail series. The Pittsburg (no "h"),
Shawmut & Northern Railroad was a peren-
nial underdog of Class I
railroads in the latter 19th
and early 20th centuries.
Described as a railroad
that "started nowhere
and ended no place, with
a lot of nothing in be-
tween," it linked the coal
mines of Elk County, Pa.,
with markets in Cattarau-
gus, Allegany and
Steuben counties in central and western
New York state. Having gone into bank-
ruptcy a mere five years after its corporate
birth, it suffered the indignity of holding the
record for the longest receivership of any
American railroad: 42 years. It was
scrapped -- lock, stock and barrel -- in
1947. Clark, who grew up along the old
Shawmut tracks in Olean, is a local histo-
rian and a lifelong devotee of the Pittsburg,
Shawmut & Northern. He is an avid volun-
teer at the Pittsburg, Shawmut & Northern
Railroad Historical Society in Angelica. He is
also the society's president and a regular
contributor to the society's newsletter, the
Cannonball. Clark has compiled the best
photographs from the society's archive in

John McAuliffe
moved back to the
Buffalo area in July 2016 after 18 years in
Boston. He continues to work for the Gen-
eral Services Administration as a realty spe-
cialist. "I'm really happy to be back in my
hometown and hope to make the 30th re-
union in June!"

Class Notes
Victor J. Andrijauskas, '71, and Diane
Aussom hit a milestone in Red Rock,
Nev., by completing their 100th trek
around the Wilderness Canyon. They
trekked the 13-mile scenic loop for the
first time in April 2011, and with the
two-mile hike back to the car, it's a
total of 15 miles for each outing. The
first five miles, Andrijauskas writes, are
uphill to a summit elevation of almost
5,000 feet. During their summer hikes,
the pair carry more than 6 quarts of
fluids each, and during the winter the
snow slows them down a bit. Andri-
jauskas lives in Las Vegas and is a re-
tired major from the United States Air

their time working together. Fran and
Ann Marie needed a real estate profes-

not know they were fellow Bonnies
